Figured bass numbers disappearing – is there a solution?

Dear Doricians, dear staff,

in my oratorio I have an Organ - Basso continuo part. Sometimes I need one single staff with numbers, sometimes two staves with composed realization or solo, as you can see below.
If I check Allow individual staves of multi-staff instruments to be hidden in Layout options, the numbers are disappearing.
Now I realized that in Dorico figured bass numbers are attached to instrument, not to staves. How could I solve this problem?
Thank you in advance.

This is a limitation that we plan to remove in future, though unfortunately there’s not a huge amount you can do at the moment. One option would be to have a single-staff instrument, e.g. a cello or similar, that you can add to your layout and duplicate the left-hand of the piano onto that instrument, then show that on the systems where the keyboard would otherwise have one staff hidden?

Thank you, Daniel! I’ll try to do this!
